I thought you said your internet was too weak to even handle posting images?
Yet here you not only posted an image with your post, but you also submitted it to the portal.

Is there something you're not telling us?

Well..... there Has been some developments in this story.... Didn't you get the press release?
Turns out that the net is reliable, although slow, but instead it's my router, that was cutting out. At first I was having some major trouble since I was running wireless, but now I'm running direct so things are a bit better.

I had a new Jack installed closer to the office area...

Sadly the router is still going and I have to get a new one soon, but at least I can get around on the net a little more.....

now to just get me scanner hooked up

Regarding the Art Request Thread

Since we've been talking about the rules recently and possibly shaking a few things up in this forum, I have to ask you regs how you feel about the current request thread. Is it working? Have there been any success stories? Are the requirements too strict?

We would love some input.

Sadly I haven't taken up many projects from the request thread. But despite that, I think the rules are pretty good over all, if anything needs to be reinforced is the payment/reward for doing the work. The payment/reward is the one thing that seems to get left out the most.

Now this is just for the kicks.

On the other end, I think that us artist should take more jobs from the thread. I suggest a public posting of a weekly, biweekly or monthly tally of how many jobs each of us do.

Only getting the mark on completion of course...

Inspire a little friendly competition between us.

I can actually see this working for the smaller requests; say if someone wants a quick graphic or a logo design or a menu background or whatever, and cant really pay anything, they could drop it in a special thread, so that the art request thread could be saved for the more serious, bigger requests. Or perhaps they should be combined, I dont know. I think there should be a artrequest.newgrouds.com account to watch over the scoring though.

I think the biggest problem is the fact that most people are asking for full game art or partial game art.
I think if they were smaller, part time things more people would want to do them

We were thinking of creating a thread in the collab forum and redirecting stuff like that there... and keep the request thread here for things like... I need a logo, tattoo, t-shirt designs, etc. Maybe it should be renamed:
..:: Art Commissions Thread 1.0 ::..

that would be better, commission implies payment, request means freebies, although you could have a freebie thread for small stuff if people are desperate and want to try their luck

Probably wouldn't amount to much, but yeah, that isn't too bad an idea. However, I've yet to really bother to take a single request, myself, and I don't really know any regs who have - like M-vero said, nobody really want to straight-out take the time to plug in a full-set of game art and the like, smaller requests would work better, although it wouldn't deal with the million or so request threads that seem to pop up.

That, and telling the difference between the two threads to people new to this forum might be a little confusing.

I would be much more interested in smaller things, like single character commissions or small group things, you know, commission stuff.

what most people here would probably consider commission stuff at least.

My only concern would be reliability with payment, something that I've seen as pretty common place is half before the commission, half after, or all at the start, to avoid getting shafted.

Bullshit. Those aren't potion bottles, those are wine bottles.

I don't have much time to make proper drawings lately, so I'll make up for the lack of attention with money.
Here's what I bought you for your birthday, Vero.

It's a Louis Vuitton, and they are goddam expensive.
